Cavs End a Six-Game Road Trip Against James Madison
Last Week's Games
Game 9: #3 Virginia 14, Richmond 2
The Cavaliers held the Spiders scoreless for 38 minutes while mounting a 7-0 lead and coasted to the 14-2 in-state victory. The Cavaliers were led by Beth Potter (Swarthmore, Pa./Ridley) who scored twice and added two assists as Virginia opened up the month of April. Three other Hoos had three-point days, including senior tri-captain Kate Evans (Swarthmore, Pa./Strath Haven), Kara Ariza (Lansdowne, Pa./Penn Wood) amd Jessica Hull (Arnold, Md./Broadneck). Evans and Ariza both had 2 goals and 1 assist, while Hull went the other way with 1 goal and two assists. Mary Sauer (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) scored her first collegiate goal in the contest.
Game 10: #7 Temple 12, #3 Virginia 4
UVa scored first but could not contest the tenacity of the Owls who handed the Cavaliers their most lopsided loss of the season. Temple went on a three-goal run before Hull scored with 52 seconds left in the hlaf to pull within one. But the Owls scored with 13 seconds on the clock to take the 4-2 halftime lead, a score that broke the Cavaliers' backs. Temple scored four goals in the first ten minutes to put the game out of reach.
Game 11: #3 Virginia 17, Villanova 5
In the final game of the Cavaliers' Philadelphia homestand, the Hoos raced out of the gates to a 10-0 lead after 17 minutes. The Cavalier defense, led by senior tri-captain Carolyn Papa (Manhasset, N.Y./ Manhasset) did not allow the Wildcats to take a shot until the ten minutes had elapsed. In all, 13 different Cavaliers scored in the game, including freshman Kelly Allenbach (West Chester, Pa./W. C. Henderson), who recorded her first collegiate points with a pair of assists. Virginia scored twice in less than a minute on four occassions, including Jamie Haas' (Berwyn, Pa./Marple Newtown) double tally forty seconds apart in the first half. Every Cavalier participated in the game which was hampered only by a steady drizzle. Five Cavaliers had three-point games, including Evans (3g), Potter (2g1a), Amy Fromal (Folsom, Pa./Ridley) (2g1a), Mia Mooney (Wayne, Pa./Shipley) (2g1a),and Haas (2g1a).
The Cavaliers conclude their six-game road swing just down the street as they take on the Dukes of James Madison. Ranked as high as four earlier in the season, the Dukes have fallen to 7th following consecutive losses to William & Mary and Maryland. The Dukes are led offensively by Shelly Klaes who has recorded 47 points on the season. Earlier this season she set the JMU record for assists in a career with 67. Virginia leads the all-time series with the Dukes 15-7-1 and have won six of the last seven. The series on Wednesdays is a bit tighter as the Hoos' lead is only 9-5-1.
Virginia returns to conference action with a date with Duke on Saturday. The Cavaliers have never lost to the Blue Devils, as they won their only meeting 14-9 last year in Durham. Both teams are 0-2 in the ACC this season. Duke is on a five-game losing streak, including a 9-8 loss to William and Mary on Sunday. They will play Richmond on Thursday before moving on down I-64 to play the Hoos.
Scoring 101: Beth Ann Potter recorded her 100th career point with a free position goal at the 22:44 mark of the first period against Richmond. She added another goal later int he game to up her career total to 101. She stands in 15th place on the career charts. She stands two points behind Amy Breen and six behind Susie Williams.
100 A+: Virginia's victory over Richmond was its 100th all-time win against in-state competition. In that span of time, the Cavaliers have forged a 100-30-4 clip, good enough for 76.1%. ODU has provided 21 of those wins.
Kate on the Field with Diamonds: Kate Evans has scored 67 goals and recorded 12 assists in her career, which puts her over the 75-point plateau with 79. She stands tied in 22nd position all-time at Virginia.
Give her a hand!: Actually, it is Beth Ann Potter who is giving most of the hands these days. She notched her 40th career assist against Villanova, which puts her 6th all-time. She needs six more to move into 3rd all by herself. In front of her now are Cherie Greer (45), Kelly Daddona (44), and Sophie Carpenter (41).
